“My family and I went to Disneyland last week. I took a small spray bottle, put bottled water inside with 10 drops of lavender oil, and used it for odors in the hotel room. It made the room smell very nice and fresh. My daughter said I should have thought of it years ago. Thanks, Young Living, for great products. We love lavender oil for so many things!”

“I mix equal parts of lemongrass and lavender essential oil (3 drops each in a 3-oz. spray bottle) with 2.5 oz. of water to refresh bedding, clothes, and upholstered furniture. I find it refreshes; eliminates stale, lingering odors; and leaves a fresh scent that is both uplifting and relaxing at the same time.”

“During a thunderstorm my shepherd and puggle would walk in circles and shiver in fear. With a few drops of lavender essential oil in the palms of my hand, I would pet their feet and heads. They would lick the oil clean off my hands and then sit quietly waiting for the storm to pass. Every other storm since then, they watch for me to get the oil on my palms and wait for the healing smell of lavender to calm them.”
